‘She’s a brick…’

You’re probably still rubbing your eyes after yesterday’s heavy, wonkish post so it might be best to get back to some more tangible redevelopment items. As you can see from the photo above, the Elm Avenue side of the Park Square project is moving along, with brick work completed and scaffolding removed. The photo at right was from a little over two weeks ago.
On the opposite corner (Elizabeth Avenue and Main Street), you can see they’ve started digging a big hole. Although I didn’t snap a photo, the guess here is that it’s the early stages of the second phase, plans for which were recently submitted to the city.

USA Today had a piece this week about boutique-style hotels, such as Hotel Indigo, and their foray into the suburbs (though I’m not sure who would consider Hoboken the suburbs — Manhattanites, I suppose?). While it didn’t mention Hotel Indigo at SkyView in Rahway, it did cite a few other examples of Hotel Indigos planned outside Boston and Indianapolis.
